Since then I have been to Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, India, and other countries. With every journey i got to know myself. The people i met taught me to take a step back in order to realize that what i regard as normal is often simply what i have gotten used to.
Different cultures open your citta, your mind-heart. Being able to see things from many different angles changes everything. There is no doubt about the value of traveling in such a way that you leave your personal comfort zone and manage with the bare necessities. It makes you appreciate what you have got. And still, from time to time i forget what really counts in life – only to be reminded again and again.
